In Windows XP, with both Mozilla and Internet Exploder browsers, onMouseover the
Democrat donkey, it cycles through four GIFs correctly. But if you go to Mozilla
on OS X Panther it cycles only through the first two of the four GIFs.

Also note that if you quickly mouseover several times the animation gets locked
into a permanent repetition mode and only reloading the page will stop it.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compare behavior in Windows XP (correct) and OS X Panther (incorrect)
2. Bring up Web site bearwebware.com/vandam
3. Place cursor over donkey
4. Observe difference in behaviors between two platforms.

Actual Results:  
Explained above

Expected Results:  
Explained above
Sounds like an OS event issue....

I´m also seeing only two of the 4 donkey-gifs.
Opera 7.23 running side-by-side shows all 4 of them.
